No, it's on. From Relix on the web:

The surviving members of the Grateful Dead have fleshed out the details regarding their upcoming benefit for the Presidential campaign of Senator Barack Obama. As previously reported, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart will perform together for the first time since 2004 on October 13. The group has now confirmed that the benefit will take place at State College, PA’s Bryce Jordan Center, with the Allman Brothers Band and an undetermined opening act also set to appear. Confirming numerous reports, guitarist Warren Haynes and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti will augment the core members of The Dead.

Last February, Weir, Lesh and Hart performed together for the first time since 2004 at a Deadheads for Obama show held at San Francisco’s The Warfield. In May, Weir also joined Phil Lesh & Friends onstage as part of the closing of the Warfield celebration. At that performance, Weir helped Lesh and his band through “Cream Puff War,” “Morning Dew,” “New Minglewood Blues” and “Viola Lee Blues” as part of the group’s recreation of the Grateful Dead’s self-titled debut. Hart and Weir have also shared the stage a few times in recent memory, most notably in Golden Gate Park as part of the Green Music Festival.

Though reunion performances are scarce, the members of The Dead have played together a few times since 2004. In 2005, all the core surviving members of the Dead sans Phil Lesh shared the stage at the Comes a Time benefit. A year later, Weir, Hart and Kreutzmann collaborated with former Grateful Dead vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay at Gathering of the Vibes and, in early 2007, the three musicians performed with Haynes and an assortment of guest musicians at an inauguration party for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. If the October 13 benefit goes well, The Dead is expected to tour in April and May of 2008 [typo - '09, which I've heard is true from various "industry" folks].

What's the beef with PSU? Did you apply and not get in?

Actually I was accepted main campus for the fall which was very difficult at the time and probably still is.

No I went to Pitt, but it has just been one of those lifetime dislikes since an early age. Grew up in the PA sticks and just didn't want to go to school in the PA sticks. Plus I grew up around such a love for the place my contrariness won out; and seems to keep winning.

Anymore it is more joking than anything else... Well, except when it comes to Joe Pa.

Though I should see about going since I have at least three high school friends on staff there; and one of them is big head. It will be a fun time psu or not.

funny, but I recall knowing people that thought the dead where from state college since there were so many heads there. I am sure it is still a hot-bed...

Are you planning on attending?

David Gans finally got around to putting a notice on his web page. Does a Spring 2009 tour mean that they're not making enough money playing as various solo acts?

The REAL question (to me) is: Will any of these upcoming Dead shows appear as boards here? ;-)

" The REAL question (to me) is: Will any of these upcoming Dead shows appear as boards here? ;-)"

Hell NO! Not even David Gans could get a decent SBD of the Warfield show in February and they are supposed to be his friends. They didn't release any of it for download even though a percentage of those profits could have been contributed to Obama's campaign too.

It will be even harder with Warren Haynes and his Allman Bros. on the bill the next time around. They can't stand the idea that using a bit torrent client, and trading files on line with your friends, has replaced the old fashioned blanks and postage system that is a relic of the 20th century...

you guys still havent answered my question....where do we find out info...there was a page on dead.net that said stay tuned for more info. now i can;t find any mention of them doing a show period.

to reply to your stuff....i dunno what david has to do with this maybe someone can enlighten me....but i would expect that they would sell a copy of the deadheads for obama soundboard officially....it was to good of a show not to and way to historic to leave in some archive where no one can hear it in its prime.
